Dream’s and Features: In Words and Pictures

Reviewed by:

Amnesty International has put together a wonderful picture book matching quotes from famous human rights activists with illustrations from contemporary artists on each two page spread. Illustrations range from the wildly colourful art of Sally Morgan, to the darker imaginings of Chris Riddell, while quotations come from those long gone, such as Anne Frank, to the Dalai Lama. Each two page spread is dedicated to a particular freedom, such as the freedom to have your own ideas, to freedom from slavery. A wonderful way to introduce younger students to the ideas of freedom, as well as a good book for Grade 6 Social Studies, this could also be used to combine Art and Social. 2-12
